Here’s What Happened After a Freshman Democrat Accused DHS of ‘Intentional’ Killing of Children

A Democrat congresswoman had her words officially stricken from the record after impugning the integrity of Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan during a congressional hearing.

“This is obviously more than a question of resources. Congress has been more than willing to provide the resources and work with you to address the security and humanitarian concerns,” Illinois Rep. Lauren Underwood said Wednesday during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing.

“But at this point, with five kids that have died, 5,000 separated from their families, I feel like — and the evidence is really clear — that this is intentional. It’s intentional. It’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration and it’s cruel and inhumane,” she said, drawing audible reaction from the room.

The first-term Democrat’s comments were directed McAleenan, who was there to give testimony about his department’s budget request.

“That’s an appalling accusation, and our men and women fight hard to protect people in our custody every single day,” McAeenan said in response.

“We’ve asked for these resources three weeks ago — it hasn’t been responded to by Congress — and we’ve asked for changes in authorities for the last three years that would’ve prevented this from happening.”

Ranking committee member Mike Rogers immediately called for a vote to strike Underwood’s statements from the official record.

“You cannot impugn the character of the witness by stating that he intentionally murders children. That is completely inappropriate and her words should be taken down,” Rogers explained.

“She was very explicit.”

A majority of the lawmakers present appeared to agree with Rogers’ sentiments.

Seven congressman voted against nixing Underwood’s statements, but nine congressmen voted in favor of doing so.

The committee vote proved to be a sharp rebuke to Underwood, who defended her criticism of DHS throughout the debate.

The incident follows the death of a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant who passed away while in Border Patrol custody.

The Guatemalan teenager was apprehended on May 13 for crossing the U.S. border illegally near Hidalgo, Texas.

He was diagnosed with the flu and prescribed medication on Sunday after informing medical staff that he didn’t feel well.

However, he was found unresponsive the following morning while in the Weslaco Station in Texas.

During the Wednesday hearing, McAleenan said these types of tragedies are “devastating” to his department, and he pleaded with lawmakers to send additional funds to DHS and enact legislative reforms.

The acting Homeland Security secretary said a lack of proper resources and restrictive laws are the root cause of these tragedies.

Immigration officials, he argued, are past their breaking point in the midst of the border crisis.

“I am highly concerned my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are using politics to block DHS from doing its job and securing our southern border,” Tennessee Republican Mark Green said during the hearing.

“My colleagues claim to be a party that defends federal workers, but where are they now defending our brave ICE agents? Where are they in helping those that serve us?”

    She most certainly put her foot in her moth a bad case of foot in Mouth decease the DemoCommunist have for three years now screwed over all Border Security, Safety, and have been in denial that a crises even existed. So it is time to call the DemoCommunist on the carpet for their lies and anti American actions over the last 12 years.

    A young, ill-informed Negress was trying to distinguish herself but failed miserably.

    Re the boy who died when being taken in on a Sunday, I could not have gotten in with my doctor any sooner than ice treated him. The Democrats are full of sh*t. They are the ones who caused this problem by not giving Pres. Trump the funds to build the wall. You should expect deaths when you have that type of population.

  • kat says:

    I am sick of the government spending our tax dollars on these criminals. Put them all in a large cage, give them some seeds to plant to grow their own food.

  • IMJustice says:

    This is utterly hard to stomach the complete moronic idiots that are in these positions of power and also wealth. It is obvious that the DHS secretary is intelligent and has his shit going on.

    The people in that room, as well as the chair, have no idea which way is up, but can surely talk hatred.

    I am stunned every single day at the imbeciles who make more money than I do, and have a much much better protected life as well.

  • Ronald Gunn says:

    So, does any one really expect any thing different fron democrats. Why they are still in congress, only GOD knows. I sure wish he would let us know some how so we can have a little hope for our future!

  • Bonnie says:

    And what about the delinquent parents who are responsible for their children’s welfare? Whose fault is it that these children were at the border in the first place…and picked up the bugs on the way? The accusers are the ones encouraging it….Not those who want the wall to protect our citizens from the invasion by all kinds of people and diseases.

    • ANI4ANI says:

      U can’t make political points by exposing that fact. In any case the propaganda arm of the SOCOMS will not broadcast or print anything that is not in the SOCOM narrative.

  • MikeHarmon says:

    Billions to feed and house them!!!!!!!! You got to be kidding! The wall to finish will cost less than that and then it is done. The problem will be Mexico’s alone! How is it democrats cannot see this simple fact. They alone are the cause of this travesty and treason by publically condoning mass migration with the promise of free everything…………. It needs to stop. If Trump really had any balls we would have the wall and this would not be an issue. Then we can purge the country of the rest of these criminals and get back to helping our own citizens.. you know the people who the Democrats want to fleece in exchange for the new voters mass migration brings

    • Dolores Herrmann says:

      Not Trump’s fault the other side of the aisle won’t work with him and Pelosi pulls the plug every time he tries to do something for America.

  • Ll says:

    Just another stupid nigger whore

  • MikeHarmon says:

    Separations cause anxiety.. Yet the child welfare people routinely separate US families……… It is just not as politically rewarding to address or mention that. These “migrants” should have their kids permanently removed from their custody is my opinion! The endangered their kids making the trip in the first place.

    • Susan says:

      Some children need to be taken away from their parents. I would rather that then have dead kids. I will admit that some social service agencies and court systems are overzealous in removing kids but that is an exception not the norm.

  • Natalie says:

    All of these kids came to the border already ill and were treated with as much speed as possible. Then the Democrats make them a poster child to blame the President. I wish more Democrats would see how unbalanced Pelosi is.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Censored? No.
    Impeached? No.
    Expelled? No.
    Removed an barred from committee assignment? No

    Words everyone heard, and idolized by the MSM, stricken from record. Yes.

    • Susan says:

      I’m not sure I would have voted to have it stricken from them record. Will it always be around where someone can find it years down the road? Sure, but if it’s not in the record, I am wondering if John Q. Public would be able to know about the complete moronic thought processes of some of these elected officials. And this is what we have representing us in government. SMH 🤦‍♀️

  • Diana says:

  • Linda says:

    These young women who are freshmen are woefully ill informed, and they continuously run off at the mouth making false characterizations. I blame a lot of that on the older more experienced congressmen and women who have not briefed these folks properly.

  • Marilynn Reeves says:

    I swear the first requirement to be a Democrat is to be certifiable STUPID.

    • Carole C. says:

      Personally, I think that anyone who runs for office should be required to read the Constitution and then be tested to see if they have any clue as to what is in it. They should also be drug tested. They should be able to pass the same test as immigrants have to pass to become American citizens. I think a lot of them would gail.

  • Greg Mikulka says:

    As if Congress isn’t enough of a circus without these incoming freshman fools running their mouth out of order & with such hatred & slander…I’m tired of these democrats (freshman & establishment) making a mockery of Congress with their over the top, inflammatory & needless political grandstanding… I hope all these democrats are serving their LAST term in office in any capacity as a lawmaker….or, in the case of democrats, OBSTRUCTIONISTS…

  • neo says:

    O.K. Moron ….HOW many died under Obozo ?(most are bringing diseases with them)(they are criminals when they cross the border ILLEGALLY)….You sure don’t have a word to say about American families being torn apart when one of their parents are charged with a crime….how about a word when Social services steal children from their parents for some little reason….Where is YOUR out rage when it is citizens children being removed by the government?

  • Robert V says:

    I worked as a paramedic on a border town in Texas. I have never once seen the Border Patrol or ICE, abuse a person in custody. In fact, the ones working in the remote areas, carry extra water.

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    Everyone here has expressed my opinion except the one blaming Trump. There’s nothing he can do when the Democrats won’t work to get the wall. I’m especially angry at the Republicans who had the opportunity when they were in power and did nothing to back the president!
